How to Learn Reiki Self Healing

Originally published in 2012

A while ago I wrote a piece called, “Is Reiki Legit?.” With all of the new-age-y, “energy” based healing options out there, it’s super easy to get inundated with the hoopla of it all, and wonder what to believe. I’m no stranger to miracles or magick. But as someone who came to understand my own gifts in such an organic way, I struggled for an outside world label to help me understand what I was doing. I was led to Reiki after having some really profound distance healing experiences with my son, (who is now recovered from severe autism). 

At first, I was confused on how to learn Reiki. But answers came as I continued to educate myself. No doubt, my abilities grew as I practiced energy work. Each time I was attuned, I felt more of the vibration and was gifted with more psychic abilities. Something was changing in me. But, even after becoming a Reiki Master, helping people heal broken bones, forgo surgery and meds, boost moods, get over illness and so much more with “Reiki,” I  rarely used it for self healing. At least not for anything profound.  Without a clear answer in my mind about whether Reiki was responsible for the healings I witnessed — I kept searching.

Besides, Reiki can mean so many things to so many people. And, as a practice, it’s certainly not lacking in posers. I guess I was covering my bases.

In truth, only Time has really helped me understand the value of Reiki in my life. I’m so glad we have Time here in this reality. This past summer has been one of the most eye-opening, freeing times of my life. And with that awesomeness came some confusion, adversity and even physical injury.

It is now that I need Reiki most. And now, that I discovered how to use it for some really amazing self healing. I wish I had pictures. But I was hurt. I wasn’t thinking too much about getting out the camera. I just wanted to share with you a few recent Reiki-fied instances that knocked my socks off.

Reiki Rebuilt my Finger in 10 Days

After a long day working with Doug on our RV remodel, I fumbled through my toiletry bag for some lip moisturizer — When, OUUUUUUUUUUCH! My hubby’s REAL RAZOR Blade (like the kind that men used  back in the 1950’s) completely cut off my middle finger tip. I know what this emotionally implies too.. just not going to go there right now. Blood was seriously gushing everywhere. I screamed so loud, and thought about crying like a baby too.  Then, I quickly used the Reiki power symbol and intended for no further damage from the wound, and ran to Doug for assistance. Once my MacGeyver-Man rubber-banded me a tourniquet, and gave me some ice for the massive pain, he crashed.

I was up all night. The blood wouldn’t stop without the rubber band/ice. So I had to stay awake alternating or else potentially lose more of my finger. (You never know)

As I sat awake that night, I did a Reiki healing attunement on myself. I’ve done these before with great results. But this time I was asking for something more specific and instant. I cut though nerve tissue. I was feeling pain in all my fingers in both hands. Doug scared me with the thought that it could take months to repair my finger tip, and that I may not have feeling when it finally healed.

For 8 hours, I alternated tea-tree oil and Reiki… sometimes holding my finger in my mouth using a special healing color and breath technique.

The next day, you would’ve never known I did any healing at all. I was still bleeding and my finger looked gross. That night, I experienced pain worse than child-birth. This had to be due to the cutting of nerve tissue. I was so tired, and could not get the blood to stop long enough to sleep sound. So, finally I decided to use Reiki to remedy the entire thing once and for all. It was the kind of decision you feel with your entirety. I’ve taken action on less certain decisions and gotten results to match. But, this time was different. The pain is what really inspired me.

I felt the Reiki energy entering at my pineal (top of head), surging through my head and down my shoulders, arms, hands and finger-tips. I was instantly comforted. ALL of the pain gone. I slept and woke up with a finger looking so much better.

Within 10 days, the skin was back without scarring or pain. Not to mention no infections. And, thank goodness I have sensation too.  And I wasn’t even being ultra careful with it either. I’m an active person, and have a hard time stopping. You can barely tell I even got hurt. My fingertip is just slightly more pink than usual, which will normalize soon. Whfew!

But there’s more….

 Reiki Helped Us During and After a Car Crash

We were recently rear-ended while stopped to make a left turn. The bummer news is that we were driving someone else’s car, we don’t have our own insurance yet and the insurance company in charge is slow to help with treatment for us. In other words.. we haven’t gotten any help in the month since we were injured.

The moment of the crash was like nothing I’ve ever felt. It was on my side of the car and felt as if something literally whacked my head/neck with a bat, or something harder. The dude who hit us kept going — slamming on his gas and crashing us more. And, my adrenaline must’ve kicked in because I jumped into the back seat and protected Dougie. I immediately used Reiki on us and the car.  I used the power symbol for no further damage and for protection. I used it in one of those Mama Bear nothings-gonna-hurt-my-baby kinda ways. And, the best news I can give you is that Dougie had absolutely no injuries.

I was so wiped out. I was so wiped out that I didn’t even consider doing Reiki on myself. Instead, I tried making chiro appointments and appointments with other healers. Bills were piling up over $500 that we weren’t sure were going to be reimbursed.

A friend came over and eased my pain with some Reiki. But, more was needed and she had to go. Doug suggested yoga, which is a great idea (If I could move with some ease). I felt I needed a healer. I felt I needed some extra help. I always wait til the last minute. 🙂

The other night I awoke in tears. Sheesh. I was equally as pissed that the crash even happened as I was about the pain that I was in. Then I made that same type of decision. I put my hands together on my neck/shoulders and sent Reiki just as I would with a client.

Funny, I actually waited there for something to happen — kind of impatiently. Like I was judging myself… “let’s see if she knows what she is doing”

Then I felt it. That amazing pulse of  warmth and relief. Like getting a massage that puts everything back in place. Like swimming in a healing pool.

I’m healing by leaps and bounds because I am consciously Reiki-ing me. I’m doing nothing else differently. Just The Reiki, and it’s pretty amazing. If you are interested in how to learn Reiki, click here.

Reiki Healing Attunements: 

A Reiki Healing Attunement is an energetic quantum leap to your best self. Healing attunements help you remove blocks (mental, emotional, spiritual, physical) so that you can see your path much clearer. This is great if you have a specific problem that you feel is blocking your growth. Healing attunements can also be used to kick-start a specific goal, or release undesirable life patterns. The Reiki energy connects directly with your higher self during a healing attunement.

We LOVE you!

Gina and Doug

Hi Loves,

These virtual group Healing Attunements are going so well — it looks like we’re going to make a “thing” of it. At least for a while — they also seem to be very needed amongst our clients, friends and readers. Thanks for all of your lovely feedback!

It’s Autumn Time, a natural time for release. Now, is a fantastic time to be alive because FINALLY, we have the power to really make positive changes in the world by simply activating our true potential.

It’s Time to Really Step into Your True Power to manifest your own BLISS. This healing attunement is dedicated to those of you who feel your Bliss is in serving others. 

Often, you may be faced with adversity or confusion due to the crumbling false realities around you. But, Reiki works with intention and source energy. And,  I will be  offering the intention to crumble those road blocks for you, to clear your path and make your journey much easier. It can be easy. It’s just about how we see things. Here’s to you stepping into the power of your Bliss. The world is a better place because of you, and as you activate your true power, you will be able to serve best.

The truth is that false realities are crumbling and those who wish to hold onto them will try to make it difficult for those who dance to their own tune and want to soar into their true selves. If you read my blog, chances are you are one of those Dancers.  You’re coming into your own power, and any pains you experience are somehow triggers to help you stand in that power.

Please add your name to this list, if you would like help on your journey to serve this world with your BLISSIEST Truest Youest most powerful YOU!

11:11 Pay it Forward Reiki Special

At 11:11 pm (cst)  (Tuesday/Sept 27 ), I will be offering a group healing attunement for those of you who comment here with your name.  The intention will be to call back your own power to heal yourself and step into your purpose. All are welcome to participate. The more of us, the stronger the energy. All I ask in return is that you pay that energy forward by tapping into  your own power. I’d love to hear how you pay it forward too.

This is a virtual group healing. I will begin at 11:11 pm from my place in the universe. You can connect with me through intention or in your dreams. By intending to “tap” in… you are strengthening the energy. 

If You are a Reiki Practitioner, please join us and let us know that you are gifting this intention with your practice too.

Talk About Activating Your True Essence.

Your DNA is sacred and created with purpose. As a whole, we have not fully made use of our true power. But  help and evidence is everywhere we look. Take a look at this plethora of info from David Wilcock. This is part 3 of a series where he talks about your pineal gland (3rd eye), the  culmination point of all the energetic information that you take in. I love David, and hope you will take a look at his whole series as well as more of his work a Divine Cosmos.
